Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

The Monday After

after the fella rose from the dead
after the cave was clear
the wind in the canyon ripped and roared
but there ain't nobody here
no
there ain't nobody here

they say that a deliverer cheated death
that he and the father are one
it's not really cheating if you are god
just in case you'd better run
yes
you might just better off run

stomp your feet on the bones, me lads
smash and crackle and grind
ain't nobody in the dust no more
at least none you can find
lads
at least none you can find

he pointed to heaven with a crooked hand
and cried to the circling crows
they wheel and cry in the shattering sky
enough to curl your toes
lads
enough to curl your toes

it's a hard life in the broken town
and harder on the farm
a fella come through with a wicked smile
with a heart like a necklace charm
lads
a heart like a necklace charm

stomp your feet on the bones, me lads
smash and crackle and grind
ain't nobody in the dust no more
at least none you can find
lads
at least none you can find

bring the children to the edge of town
and stand them on the hill
sing to the one who died for us
it will give him such a thrill
lads
it gives him such a thrill

where is the martyr upon the cross
where is the saint of the soul
he vanished into the misty mist
and left behind a hole
lads
he left behind a hole

stomp your feet on the bones, me lads
smash and crackle and grind
ain't nobody in the dust no more
at least none you can find
lads
at least none you can find

after the fella rose from the dead
after the cave was clear
the wind in the canyon ripped and roared
but there ain't nobody here
no
there ain't nobody here
